The A's are facing elimination in their series against the Detroit Tigers, but they still believe the season can be extended.

The Oakland Athletics dropped the first two games of their ALDS to the Detroit Tigers, and now are one loss from having their season ended. That doesn't mean they are about to give up. The series now shifts to Oakland, where the A's will be at home for all three remaining games if they are necessary.

A's right field Josh Reddick isn't ready to quit, and he is still confident that Oakland will move on to the ALCS, according to CSN Bay Area:

"We're not going to get our heads down and act like we're beaten. We've gotten this far for a reason and we are a good team and we know we are a good team. We're just going to grind it out and win these next three ballgames."

Oakland worked all season, and made an impressive comeback down the stretch, to earn home field advantage in the ALDS, and now they are going to need it. The series is set to resume on Tuesday night, as the A's will face the Tigers' Anibal Sanchez with their season on the line. Oakland has yet to announce a starting pitcher.

The Athletics defeated Sanchez on Sep. 20, scoring six runs on the right-hander in 5 innings.
